Daily Currency Outlook: GPB/USD And USD/CHF : October 18,2018

GBP/USD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.3075; (P) 1.3140; (R1) 1.3179;

Intraday bias in GBP/USD remains neutral as it’s still bounded in range of 1.3081/3257. On the upside, above 1.3257 will bring another rise. But upside should be limited by 1.3316 key fibonacci level to bring down trend resumption eventually. On the downside, below 1.3081 minor support will turn bias to the downside for 1.2921 support first. However, sustained break of 1.3316 would pave the way to next fibonacci level at 1.3721.


In the bigger picture, whole medium term rebound from 1.1946 (2016 low) should have completed at 1.4376 already, after rejection from 55 month EMA. The structure and momentum of the fall from 1.4376 argues that it’s resuming long term down trend. And this will be the preferred case as long as 38.2% retracement of 1.4376 to 1.2661 at 1.3316 holds. However, firm break of 1.3316 would bring stronger rebound to 61.8% retracement at 1.3721. And, the eventual depth of the fall from 1.4376, and the chance of hitting 1.1946 low, will depend on the strength of the interim corrective rebound from 1.2661.


USD/CHF Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.9915; (P) 0.9935; (R1) 0.9972;

USD/CHF’s breach of 0.9954 suggests that rise from 0.9541 is resuming. Intraday bias is now on the upside for 1.0067 resistance and then 61.8% projection of 0.9541 to 0.9954 from 0.9848 at 1.0103. On the downside, break of 0.9848 support is needed to indicate short term topping. Otherwise, further rally will be expected even in case of retreat.


In the bigger picture, the pullback from 1.0067 has completed at 0.9541 already. And rise from 0.9186 is likely resuming. Firm break of 1.0067 will pave the way to retest 1.0342 key resistance. We’d be cautious on strong resistance from there to limit upside to bring another medium term fall to extend long term range trading.
